The Beyond Weddings gift service has a whole new take on wedding gift lists. It is a practical bespoke gift list made up of interior design items for each couple from a wide range of suppliers.
The idea came to me after several of my interior design clients requested my help with their wedding gift selection, and I found myself choosing pieces which their guests would contribute to. Beyond Weddings started in 2009, it is a sister company to Beyond Design which started in 1993.
Beyond Weddings is run by me, Chelsea Bidwill. I am an interior architect who grew up on boats – so I have a keen eye for small spaces and fine design.
The result of using Beyond Weddings is a beautiful home that your wedding guests have contributed to. It is a very practical present, a fresh start at home when you get married. The gift list can entail anything interior wise and it is totally bespoke to you with large trade discounts.
Choosing the perfect bridal shoes is almost as important as choosing your wedding dress. Once you have chosen your dress you will need to find bridal shoes that complete your look, but as there are so many shoes to choose from this can be a difficult task. Make sure you find comfortable shoes that you will be able to wear all day, after all, what’s the point in buying beautiful shoes if you have to take them off after half and hour?
